Cisse Plea For Newcastle To Keep Ba

8 years ago

Papiss Cisse has undermined regular press claims that he and Demba Ba don’t get on, by saying he hopes Newcastle United will do everything they can to keep a ‘vital player’;

“I adapted well to playing with Demba Ba when I signed last season and he is a vital payer for Newcastle.

I hear the decisions from the directors at the club but personally, I don’t think this is good news for us”.

Interviewed in The Sun, Cisse also made clear that he is more than happy to sacrifice personal glory/goals if it helps the team;

“I’m a Newcastle player and accept the orders of the coach, I’m more of a forward but if my work helps then it is normal to play in any position I’m asked, I’ve never demanded an explanation from Alan Pardew.

The manager has spoken with me and told me how much confidence he has in my work.

I am content in the Premier League, I always dreamed of this experience”. 

Newcastle have got few enough real quality players and just like Papiss Cisse I hope that a solution can be found to keep Demba Ba at Newcastle AND that Alan Pardew is then allowed to recruit players in January who will help get the best out of both Ba and Cisse, for Newcastle United.

Hopefully both players will show their talents at Arsenal today.
